Just in case any of you are having the same 'issues' with your children getting along and loving each other (is it the fact that they are 5 years apart in age or the fact that they are boys or that fact that they are 6 and 11 or that fact that they are siblings and that's just how it is? sigh.), I want to share something with you.
The other night, things were particularly sad around here, and it just happened to be family night. So in a flash of inspiration, I turned to the trusty MormonMessage's For Youth Channel on YouTube for help. This is what I found.
It has worked wonders.
It made my boys think about their relationship (ok, mostly the 11 year old is thinking- the 6 year old just reacts to how he is treated by big brother) and wow, I am loving the changes I see.
It is amazing how powerful family relationships are. This video does a wonderful job of pointing that out.
